The Oily, Farmer.
When, formerly a city man who Jiad
inA.de bis "pile." . and. as he drove
through thi country and became fas
cinated with the buauty of the growing
crops and things in general, . would
make up bia niiiul to try his hand at so
pleasant a business bis actions were
carefully - watched by the old farmers
and his many blunders laughed at. He
was - not salislied to have the things
after the fashion of the general farmer,
lie most have them all much nicer and
better, and then couldn't help but suc
ceed. ".He bought -imported cattle,
sheep, swine, chickens and what not,
the tinest and most- expensive imple
ments and farm machinery, some of
which had -scarcely been read of by
agriculturists generally. , Ho hauled
his manure from the city by scores of
loads;, guano was appliod profusely
and everything done on a scale that
threw all his neighbors entirely in the
shade. When they protested against
a great deal of this useless expenditure
and waste of labor he would reply that
be had hit own ideas about matters and
things, and as he thought they were an
improvement on the old fogyisms of tho
Oay ho , would jry what he could do,
having no doubt of his entire success,
and others would be glad to follow
him : but no success followed, at least,
not in the shape or to the extent ex
pected. Tho next .year was still less
satisfactory, as several of hi? lino cattle
died from over-feeding. The following
vear the lly got into his wheat so as to
leave not more than one stock standing
where there ought to be twenty. The
worms destroyed his apples, llis po
tatoes rotted. - Sow e roving, worthless
dogs killed or mangled twenty of his
Southdown sheep in a single night.
The lightning burnt down his barn.
Hence, at the end of five years he found
there was neither pleasure nor profit in
farming in fact, lie was quite sure of
it. . His family complained, too, of be
ing away from ' the city, from their
friends, from , parties, operas and
theatres and were terribly tireJ, any
how, of the country. Papa, therefore,
backed by his family, who had come out
with such eagerness into the pure at
mosphere of the hills and valleys, sold
out everything at half its value houses,
lands, stocks, crops, household goods
and everything else, root and branch
losing from $15,000 . to $20,000, and
went back from whence he came, a
wiser, if not richer man. Denver litter
Old Mr. P. had been, after a fashion,
a Baptist preacher for fifty years. lie
was qnite proud of a claim he frequfiit-'
ly made from the pulpit, that in his
line he was the oldest in the State.
There was but one man who disputed
this claim, and thus Mr. P. was accus
tomed to dispose of him: One Sunday,
bringing as usual Into the sermon lii-t
favorite paresthesia, he spoke about
as follows: "Brethcrn and sisters, I've
been a preachin' this blessed Gospel fur
fifty year, the second Sunday o' last
Jinuary. I'm the oldest preacher in
the State. Now old Brother J., I've
heard, ' been a-disputin'-me on that
p'int, and says he's tho oldest. Now,
my brethern and sisters. Brother J.
aiu't a exactly countin fa'r. Brother
J. have been a-standin' in the pulpit
fur lifty-two year; it's a fact, and I'm
not a-goin' to deny it; but" then the
old man smiled in a triumph that,
though mild, was most decided "but,
brethren and sisters, the first four year
o' that preachin' o' Brother J. he were
a Melhodis',and I count that no preach
in' at all; and, accordin' to my calkila
tion, that fetches him down to forty
eight year, jes' two 3'ear behind me."
The same parson was sometimes
3uite pointed in his rebukes for disord
erly deportment in church. One Sun
day a j-oung lady in tho congregation
had changod her seat several times
during the delivery of the sermon. As
she was about taking vet another seat,
lie said to her, "That'll do, my darter;
set down ; now, and keep still fur the
balance o' the sarmint. Every body
done see your new calliker frock."
On another occasion he thus began
his discourse, after having chosen a
simple text: Well, to-day, my breth
crn and sisters, I'm goin' to preach a
little different from common. I've
been a-preachin' big theological sar
mints fur some time, but to-day I'm
goin' to preach jes' a common plain
sarmint one that the wimming and
niggers can understan'." '
Gymnastics as a Cure of Disease.
Boerhave, the great Dutch phvsician,
insenbed on the wall of his lecture
room, "I gave the medicine, Go.l cured
the disease-" He was far in advance
of the doctors of hi era, and promul
gated ideas which were then novel, but
which science has since made common
place. In an age of dosing, when quantity
was as much thought of as quality, he
"When I reflect on the immunity of
hard-working people from the effects of
wrong and over-feeding, I cannot help
thinking that most of our fashionable
diseases might be cured mechanically
instead of chemically, by climbing a
bitterwood tree, or chopping it down,
if you like, rather than swallowing a
dose of its disgusting leaves."
Each school boy now knows that
physical vigor is the basis of bodily
health, antimay only bo retained by
exercise. But in those days few phy
sicians cared to utter the truth, even if
they themselves knew it.
The Ancient Greeks, knowing that
an effeminate man is half sick, provid
ed gymnastic exercises. They used
these to promote health and prevent
disease.. An old Greek doctor, Ascle
piadese, is quoted as an authority by
Dr. Oswald to enforce the idea that
gymnastics will cure disease.
The philosopher had found that
health could bo preserved, and if lost,
restored by . physical exercise alone,
and not only discarded the use of in
ternal remodies, but made public dec
laration that he would forfeit all claim
to the title of physician if he should
ever fall sick or die but by violence or
extreme old age.
Asclcpiadcse kept his word, for he
lived upward of a century, and died
from the effects of an accident. He
used to prescribe a course of gymnas
tics for every bodily ailment. YoutlCs
' A Valuable Bouquet.
One of the first things the Princess of
Wales purchased at a late fancy fair
was a magnificent bouquet, for which
she cave a conple of sovereigns or so.
Having inspected the various stalis,
she was on the point of departing, when
one of the ladies, who had been most
indefatigable in disposing of her wares,
and was evidently a personal friend of
her Royal Highness, stopped, her.
What, - are you going already?"
"Yes," said tha Princess. "O, then
do give me your bouquet, and wait a
moment, and see what I will do with
it." Her Royal Highness complied with
the request at once; whereupon the
vendor - promptly announced to the
crowd of male admirers standing round
her stall that flowers from the Princess
bouquet were on sale at ten shillings
apiece "only a limited number to bo
disposed of." In less than two min
utes thirty gallants had each one in his
button-bole, and thirty golden - half
sovereigns had been added to tho funds
of tho charity.

said I thought not, a I could not wt 11

days I got a letter from Cyrus which
said: 'No man should take a trip
abroad without his wife. I have for
warded to London a letter of cred't for
you for 1,000.' This was all there
was in it, and I think Cyrus was right.

A Dangerous Craft.
The ram"Polyphemu?,"just launched
at Chatham, Eug., is a cigar-shaped
Vessel, having neither masts nor sails,
and when in te;vice but very little of
Iier. will-be seen above water, except
the central portion, upon which will be
placed the funnels, signal towers, and
other features necessary to have above
water. Her chief weapons are an
enormous ram, projecting twelve feet
from the bow, and torpedoes.-for the
use of which she is specially designed.
The torpedo? can bo fired from the bow
or from either side of the ship, the
ejecting parts being some depth below
the water-line. Tne ram is also sub
merged, so as to strike armor-clads
well be!ow their iron plating. As the
.vessel's speed will be not less than sev
en te.. n knots an hour, she will be a
very formidable craft for a fleet to en
counter. Lincoln's Gettysburg Oration.
Mr. IL S. Chiit in. of Clifton, Out. ,
writing to the Toronto Mail, says: "On
a visit in 18G8 to the famous battle
field, Mr. Wills, a well-known resident
of Gettysburg, who was Mr. Lincoln's
host on the occasion of the cemetery
dedication, told me that in the morn
ing after the President's arrival he
rapped at his door to ascertain if he
had slept comfortably, etc.. and fouud
him partially dressed and seated at a
small table with a half a sheet of paper
before him, upon which he had been
writing in pencil. 'Come iu,' said he
to Mr. Wills, 'lake a seat. 1 want to
read to you what I have been scribbling-
for a speech to-day. and to get
your opinion on it. It isn't long.'
And then he read to Mr. Wills the
speech exactly as he delivered it in
public a few hours later. The emen

An Old Trick.
A Voluntown horse laid down in tho
shaft of the vehicle to which he was at
tached on Water street recently. The
good hearted bystanders rushed to tho
prostrate animal, held him down by
the head, unbuckled his harness and
carefully pushed back the vehicle while
he got up . They then harnessed him
in. Just as the work was concluded
one of the lookers ou remarked : "Yud
better let that beast alone, friends, he
knows how to lie down ami how to get
up." "Is he your horse?" asked one
of the active men. "Well, yes, I s'poso
he is. That air is an old trick er his'n.
He never breaks nuthin. He is the
caref-most beast you ever see. I lets
him go down and git up just when he
wants to." The astonished fellows con

Humors of tha Telephone.
It is a somewhat singular fact that
an ordinary business man will put up
with almost anything he makes uso of
except the telephone; but from the
greatest invention of this or any other
century an instrument that daily
saves him more time and labor than &U
his other improvements put together

does not come instantly, ho swears.
He tells the central office the person
ho wishes to speak with; if the bell
does not tap again before he can count
a dozen, ho swears some more, and he
vows he ould go and do the errand in
half the time. A disinterested listener,
however, knows that lie couldn't have

thing of the age to bring out human
nature. A man will show more of
himself in five minutes before this deli
cate machine than in lialf a year in or
dinary ways. We recommend that tho
bells be made with a little mirror, to
enable some of those irascible people,
who think it strange that the telephone
can't go out and harness up a horse for
them, to see tha latest and most ini
proved specimen of a jackass. Ft
A Cure by Imagination,
At a large hotel the not uuc immon
dilemma arose of there being only one
room in the ho sa vacant when two
visitors required accommodation for
the night. It was a double-bedded
chamber, or was soon converted into
such, and tho two guests who wero
both commercial travelers agreed to
Buare it. ' One of these gentlemen was
a confirmed hypochondriac, and great
ly alarmed his companion by waking
him up in tho middlo of the night,
gasping for breath. "Asthma," he
panted out; "I am subject to these
spasmodic attacks. Open tho window
quickly; give mo air! Terrified be
yond measure, the other jumped out of
bed. But the room was pitch dark; he
had no matches, and he had forgotten
the position tf the window. "For
Heaven's sake, bo quick!" gasped the
invalid. "Give me more air, or I shall
choke!" At length, by dint of groping
wildly and upsetting half the furniture
in the apartment, tho window was
found; but it was an old-fashioned
casement, and no hasp or catch was o
bo discovered. 'Quick! quick! air!
air!" implored the apparently dung
man. ' Open it, break it, or I shall be
suffocated!" Thus adjured, his friend
lost no more time, but seizing a boot,
smashed every pane; aud the sufferer
immediately experienced great relief.
"Oh, thank you; a th'.iuMind thanks.
Ha!" he exclaimed, drawing deep
sighs which testified to the great com
fort ho derived; "I think in another
moment I should have been dead!"
And when he had sufficiently recovered,
and had expressed his heartfelt grati
tuto, he described tho intense distress
of these attacks, and the length of time
he had suffered from them.
After a while both fell asleep again,
devoutly thankful for tho result. It
was a warm summer night, and they felt
no inconvenience from the broken win
dow but when daylight relieved the pit
chy darkness of the night, the window
was found to be still entire. Had invis
ible glaziers been at work already, or
was the episode of the past night only si
dream? No; for the floor was still
strewn with the broken glass. Then,
as they looked round the room in amaz -ment,
the solution of the mystery
presented itself in the shape of an an
tiquated bookcase, whose latticed glass
doors wero a shattered wreck. The
spasnif sdically-attacKed one was cured
from that moment. So much for ima

following description of Mr. Jefferson :
'Mr. Jefferson's figure was rather ma

rather high-shouldered: manners sim

fashioned, plain and neat: a dark pepper-and-salt
coat, cut in tho old Quaker
fashion, with a single row of large
metal buttons, knee breeches, gray
worsted stockings, shoes fastened by
large metal buckles such was the ap
pearance of Jefferson when I lirst maile
his acquaintance in 1816. His two
granddaughters the Misses Randolph

was in the evening conversation? with

Milk as a Foo3.
Again, milk is a food which should
not be taken in copious draughts like
beer or other fluids which diff -r from
it chemically. If we consider t':e uso
of milk in infancy, tho physiological
ingestion, that is, of it, we fin I that ilia
su.-kling babe imbibes little the na ural
food provided for it. Each small
mouthful is secured by eff rt, and
slowly presented to the gastric mucous
surface for the primal digestive stages.
It is thus regularly and gradually re
duced to curd, and the stomach is not
oppressed with a lump of half-coagulated
milk. The same principle should
be regarded in the case of tha adult.
Milk should be slowly taken in mouth
ful, at short intervals, anil t!iu3 it is
rightly dealt with by the gastric juice.
If miik bo taken after other food it is
almost sure to burden the stomach and
to causa discomfort and prolonged in
digestion, an I this for the obvious rea
son that there is insufficient digestive
agency to dispose of it. And the better
the quality of milk tho more severe tho
d scoinforts will be under thsse condi

making simple puddings of such fari
naceous food as rice, tapioca and sago.
Distaste for these is engendered very
often, I believe, because tho milk is
stinted in making then), or poor, skim
med miik is used. Abundance of new
milk should be employed, and moro
milk or cream should be added when
they are taken. In Scottish households
this matter is well understood, and a
distinct pudding-plate, like a small
soup-plate is used for this course. The
dry masses commouty served as milky
puddings in England are exactly fitted
to create disgust for whut should be a
most excellent and delicious part of a
wholesome dinner for both children
and adults. Popular Science Monthly.
The Wood Floors of Russia.
The finest floors are sail to be seen

grade tropical woods are exclusively

to shrink, even after being well sea
